Thinking with Bad Bunny: the Cultural Politics of Race, Language, and Empire Fall 2024 - MUS 355 / LAO 354

This interdisciplinary course examines the cultural and political significance of Puerto Rican
mega star Bad Bunny who has transcended musical genres to become a global phenomenon.
Through an interdisciplinary lens, students will engage in a critical analysis of his music, lyrics,
aesthetics, activism, gender non-conforming performances, and savvy business strategies. We
will examine how Bad Bunny/Benito uses his platform and artistry to negotiate the complexities
of being both a global Latinx icon and a child of Puerto Rico’s colonial context.
